One of Them

"How long are you going to be upset with me?" "I don't know yet but it's going to be for a while." "But, why? I thought you would be pleased or impressed." "Pleased? Impressed? You're crazy if you think I would be either. You were my BFF – Bucket filling friend. We had so many …

The Wedding

Her heart was racing.  She hoped she looked presentable in her V-neck floral knee length summer dress and the pair of wedges which she thought looked better than the pumps she had considered wearing.  To complete the look, she wore the lovely olive leaf pendant which Paolo had given her for her birthday. “Mama, incontrare Roxane, il …

The Nursing Home

It was Saturday morning and Andrea was at the nursing home visiting Mrs. Alvarez, dear woman whom she met through her grandmother.  After her grandmother passed away, Andrea continued to visit Mrs. Alvarez who was always delighted to see her.  She was in a wheelchair and although she was ninety years old, her mind was …

The Barbecue

"You're not his type." If that smile were meant to take the sting out of her words it didn’t work.  Kay was smarting from it.  “I don’t mean to upset you, Kay, but I thought I would warn you because I have seen the way you look at Quinn every time you see him.  I …

Working Overtime

Never in all the years she worked with Gabriel did she anticipate falling in love with him.

Dinner for Two

A Failed Plan

The young ladies were all in a tizzy because Mr. Edmond McFadyen was joining them for dinner that evening.  Mr. Burrows had taken the liberty to extend the long overdue invitation when he had the pleasure of bumping into the young man at the gentlemen's club that morning. Ever since the McFadyens had moved into …

Young and Divorced

It was hard to believe that this was the same man she married.  They had started off so strong.  They were told that they were too young to get married but they believed that they were ready.  Their love was strong enough to weather any storms that would appear on the horizon.  Or so she …

Providence

"Miss Johnson, to what do I owe the pleasure of this unexpected visit?" Lucius Suchet asked, his brown eyes studied her as she stood in the doorway.  "I'm astonished that you remember me considering that you didn't so much as say a word to me last night." She ignored his remarks and marched over to …

The Suitor Calls

It was Friday evening.  Mr. Read was to call on her.  She felt a prickle of excitement at the thought of seeing him again.  The week had flown by quickly.  It seemed only a moment ago when she had surprised him in the library where he was composing a note which he gave to her.   …
